About the Authors
  • For many years, the focus of fertility research and treatment has been the female. In reality, at least half of all infertility cases have a male factor as a major or contributing cause. Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of male infertility have enabled pregnancies in cases where the male partner was previously considered to be untreatable or even sterile. With contributions from world-renowned experts, this comprehensive overview of male infertility covers anatomy, evaluation, treatment and prevention. The elucidation of the molecular genetics underpinning spermatogenesis and the development of new sperm function tests have increased our understanding of male infertility and led to new treatments which are discussed and evaluated. This volume presents the latest scientific developments in a clinically useful and practical format. The book is packaged with a high-quality surgical atlas on CD-ROM. This text will be valuable for urologists and reproductive endocrinologists at all levels.

    • 'Pearls' sections at the end of each chapter give a concise list of the most important points discussed
    • High quality surgical atlas on CD-ROM provides a visual demonstration of the procedures explained in the text
    • Comprehensive content written by internationally renowned specialists

    “…One of the finest contributions to andrology…practical, clinically-oriented emphasis distinguishes this book from others in andrology, as does its visual, illustrative approach and a DVD clarifying the latest microsurgical techniques.”
